No decision yet on compensating students for alleged errors in Class 10 English paper, CBSE clarifies
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said it was undecided on providing compensation to Class X students for an alleged error in the English question paper
New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday said it was undecided on providing compensation to Class X students for an alleged error in the English question paper.
Teachers and students have been claiming that the paper held on 12 March had certain errors in the comprehension passage section.
The passage section of the paper where students were expected to find synonyms of 'endurance, obstruction and motivation' in paragraphs two, four and five, respectively had its answers in paragraphs three and six. Certain typos also led to confusion among students, an online petition started by a group of students said.
Reports were doing round that the board has decided to compensate students for the "error", however, the board officials clarified that no decision has been taken yet.
"Evaluation is a very secretive process. Though the marking policy is always decided keeping the interests of students in mind, an expert committee examines whether it is an error in the first place or not and how students' interest can be safeguarded," a senior CBSE official said.
The Class X and XII board examinations began on 5 March and will conclude by 13 April.
